The "strong agreement" was reached after months of talks with Four Seasons Rehabilitation owner Charles Dunn.

“Nursing home workers at Four Seasons won this agreement because we joined together and raised our voices, demanding the pay, protections and basic respect every essential worker deserves,” said Carolyn Cole, a CNA for 29 years who works at Four Seasons. “This is just the latest victory we get to celebrate as nursing home workers in Detroit. By coming together in our union, we’ve proved essential workers are stronger when we stand together, whether that’s on the strike line or at the ballot box, casting our votes for leaders who will be in this fight for economic and racial justice with us.”
